Jeffery was employed by the Internal Revenue Service for 10 years as an Internal Revenue Agent. During this time period:
He conducted independent Special Enforcement Program (SEP) examinations and related investigations of the most complex income tax returns filed by individuals, small businesses, organizations and other entities. SEP is a specialized compliance program within the Small Business/Self-Employed Division (SB/SE) directed toward that segment of the population who derives substantial income from either legal or illegal activities and intentionally understates their tax liability. This may include those with diversified activities, multiple partners and national scope and operations. These cases require an integrated analysis of intricate and complex accounting systems, business activities and financing.
Jeffery conducted package audits to determine that other required returns such as information or specialty returns were filed and conducted concurrent examinations of these and other returns when warranted. He evaluated the content of new and modified legislation and assessed the impact on the program. He identified issues to be pursued based on large, unusual or questionable items which produced significant tax or compliance effect, recognized the impact and utilized the appropriate tax law and facts needed to resolve them. He identified, developed and investigated those issues which had significant fraud potential and developed appropriate referrals. He utilized standard accounting methods and techniques during the course of examinations in order to develop information regarding the income and financial operations of taxpayers. He examined accounting systems and records including computerized accounting and financial information systems, which reflected a variety of complex financial operations. He gathered and researched data from a variety of sources and/or specialized accounting practices unique to a particular trade or industry. He conferred with taxpayers or their representatives to explain the accounting and other issues involved and the applicability of pertinent tax laws and regulations and explain proposed adjustments. He prepared work papers and reports documenting findings and conclusions.
As a SEP agent, Jeffery was assigned to review cases, participate in grand jury cases, examine special areas of taxation including offshore compliance and to participate as a cooperating agent in joint investigations. In addition, he was asked to perform criminal computations for the U.S. Department of Justice and the IRS Office of Chief Counsel and to perform any other special duties appropriate for knowledge required.
